Editorial Reviews

"[A] very informative and highly readable book. . . .The book s evenhanded treatment of complex issues surrounding the Iraq War as well as the author s jargon-free writing style should appeal to specialists and nonspecialists alike. Summing Up: Recommended" - Choice"This is an important examination of the Iraq conflict. The strength of the book is in its completeness - it provides excellent documentation of the events leading up to the conflict as well as a sophisticated discussion of key developments following the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. It is written from an Arab perspective and is especially good at pointing out the American/Iraqi misunderstandings that have compounded and drawn out this sad tragedy. It has no ax to grind, just a thorough objective examination of the record. While other books have touched on various aspects of the conflict, this is by far the most complete." - Robert Looney, Distinguished Professor, Naval Postgraduate School
